Smallest gardeners start work
Usually our school groups are aged at least six years old, but we were persuaded by the enthusiasm of the organiser to welcome a class of three-year olds from Grove Park Playgroup. They inspected the ladybirds, checked out the flowers and vegetables, and then planted lots of peas. They learnt a bit, and we learnt a lot: make sure the seeds are quite large and make sure the session is not too long. But apart from that, it's never too early to start them off.
